LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Hi Bob and Mabels We have had a blue Parakeet at our feeder since April 27, evidently an escapee who has made good. He's quite a dressy addition to our House Sparrows and had become quite chummy with the Martins until they left. He's now a proficient imitator of both Martins and Sparrow calls. Peg Smith. Dear Gang: Here the Humboldt Current keeps us fogged over only one afternoon of sun in three weeks. Our jungle trip is going to be fabulouslj I'll write about the Hoatzins, Macaws, Tapirs, etc. when I return (probably about the mosquitos etc. tool) A trip to Callao a few days ago produced at least 500,000 /// birds. The great flocks of ocean birds are unbelievable — like smoke. They consist of mainly Peruvian Cormorants (Guanay), Gainmards (7) Cormorant, Peruvian Boobies, Gray, Kelp, Belcher's Gulls, Pelicans, Inca Terns, and various junk! Banded a D'Orbigny's Ground Dove and Caught two Blue-black Grassquits (birds coming to feeder). Can't band grassquits because we are using homemade bands and can't make them small enough for grassquits. John O'Neill — Lima,Peru # * * * # *-» * «■ NOTICE:— The O.G. Roster is out. Supplements will be issued as the year progresses, notify the secretary of any omissions or corrections. Please THE THROW AWAY YOUR DROOL CUP FIELD TRIP — by Leuise Heffman (Led by the most wistful drooler of them alls Henry S. Hoffman) -f^ Thanks to services beyond the call of duty of Mr. Wesley W. Alexander, who repre- _j sents the Galveston Convention and Tourist Bureau, you can now stop looking over fences t-i vJ into Birdland and feeling pitiful and unwanted. Just drive in, show your permanent pass proudly, and bird your little old head off! The world is your oyster. The purpose of the field trip on July 16 was to acquaint our members with the areas of Galveston Island we now have permission to bird on. The brightest jewel in our crown may well be the Shearn Moody Ranch formerly known as Roamin III. At the second entrance which leads to a rocky spit you can walk out on, a green heron acting mighty , p.= nesty tried to steal the thunder away from a least bittern seen as we entered. There was an unseasonal coot scooting around. And we also got a face full of least terns. The week before when we had cased the joint with Mr. Alexander, there were little blue and great blue herons, snowy egret, black-crowned night heron and a green heron all in your eyeballs at the same time on one stretch of rock.
